Exclamation Made in America

What's Really Made in America?

Look for these markings: Made in the USA

ACE HARDWARE - Made in the USA - Very Encouraging


Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost
half the price that you will pay on the outside
and they are made in the U.S.A. Read and do
the following.

Unfortunately our politicians and top CEOs have
pushed for trade to China and Mexico for years so
Americans are now out of work.

Did You Know that there is no electric coffee maker
made in the US and that the only kitchen appliances
made in the US is Viking? This information came from
the a report by Diane Sawyer. Hopefully this has
changed or will soon!!

That's why I don't buy cards at Hallmark anymore, They are
Made in China and are more expensive! I buy them at Dollar
Tree - 50 cents each and made in USA

I have been looking at the blenders available on the
Internet. Kitchen-Aide is MADE IN THE USA. Top of my list

Yesterday I was in Wal-Mart looking for a wastebasket.
I found some Made In China for $6.99. I didn't want to
pay that much so I asked the lady if they had any others.
She took me to another department and they had some
at $2.50 made in USA. They are just as good. Same as
a kitchen rug I needed. I had to look, but I found some
Made in The USA - what a concept! - and they were $3.00

We are being brainwashed to believe that everything that
comes from China and Mexico is cheaper. Not so.

One Light Bulb at A Time..

I was in Lowe's the other day and just out of curiosity,
I looked at the hose attachments. They were all
Made in China. The next day I was in Ace Hardware
and just for the heck of it I checked the hose
attachments there. They were made in USA

Start looking, people ...In our current economic
situation, every little thing we buy or do affects
someone else - most often, their job.

My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I noticed, though,
that it is now marked "Made in Mexico." I don't buy it

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico I have switched to Crest.

You have to read the labels on everything.

This past weekend I was at Kroger. I needed
60W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets. I was
in the light bulb aisle, and right next to the GE
brand I normally buy -- was an off-brand labeled,
"Everyday Value." I picked up both types of
bulbs and compared them: they were the same
except for the price . . .the GE bulbs cost more
than the Everyday Value Brand, but the thing that
surprised me the most was that that GE was
Made in MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand
was made in - you guessed it - the USA at a
company in Cleveland, Ohio.

It's way past time to start finding and buying products
you use everyday that are made right Here.

So, on to the next aisle: Bounce dryer sheets... Yep,
you guessed it, Bounce cost more money and is made
in Canada. The Everyday Value Brand cost less, and
was MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry yesterday and
the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free
I have been using for years, at almost half the price.

My challenge to you is to start reading the labels
when you shop for everyday things and see what
you can find that is Made In the USA - The job you
save may be your own or your neighbor's!

If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others
in your address book so we can all start buying
American, one light bulb at a

Stop buying from overseas companies - you're
sending the jobs there. (We should have awakened
a decade

Let's get with the program and help our fellow
Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs
here in the


I passed this on.. ..Will you???
If you care about
American workers, you will pass it on

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
